All my money is about to stop and I've yet to hear from my Bursary

I'm due to start uni in 2 weeks and I've yet to hear about my student bursary. This means that in two weeks I have to sign off job seekers allowance which I'm assuming will also stop my housing benefit. I don't even know what to do about child tax credits etc. It's so annoying because without knowing how much bursary I will get, I can't tell CTC or housing benefit what my income is so they can't sort it out!!

Any advice??

Can your student union representatives help? Other than that, make a nuisance of yourself and keep calling them...

You dont need to tell tax credits until after the change and bursarys are not usually big enough to cancel out CTC....

Try the hardship loan at your uni?
